 Sorry, I was completely wrong.
 I missed following description in etc/MAKEDEV.tmpl:
 >> #   pty*    set of 16 master and slave pseudo terminals
 >> #   opty    first 16 ptys, to save inodes on install media
 >> #   ipty    first 2 ptys, for install media use only
 The essencial changes were pty[0123] removal from "all" target
 in etc/MAKEDEV.tmpl, and actually sparc install iso uses miniroot,
 so ipty is required in distrib/sparc/miniroot/
 (BTW amd64 and i386 (and some other ports) have "ipty" in "all_md"
  target in etc/etc.${MACHINE}/MAKEDEV.conf so I wonder if "all_md"
  should include "ipty" or not)
 For sun2 and sun3 miniroot, it doesn't have sysinst so if openpty(3)
 is required by only sysinst they don't pty devices either.
